I have struggled with finding the right place where to learn how to create a website in wordpress for free.
Not only did it seem impossibly difficult, but also scary!
If you are like I was 5 months ago, stick with me here and learn how to create your very own website from scratch.
Not paying anything!!
You can follow me step by step creating a new one myself and letting you in on the process by sharing my screen shots.
And moreover, it literally takes 30 seconds.
Definitely less than the other scary thing in life, a visit with the dentist!
It is also painless, fascinating, and oh, did I mention that it is free?
Let’s get rolling, shall we?!
How to create a website in wordpress for free in 30 seconds
Where do we start? Simply with a click on the Siterubix.com website builder, which is installed on the Wealthy Affiliate (WA) platform.
Maybe you have read my previous article and know about this awesome platform where you can store two websites completely for free for a month. After that you can either export and find another hosting, or stay and upgrade to premium for just 19 bucks a month. This is less than any other hosting…but don’t you worry, you can take a peep at the whole thing.
A month-long peep for free, take the course, learn and interact and ask questions. You will be just as happy as I was with this platform. I upgraded even before the free month had finished. I wanted access to it all and don’t regret any of it!!
It has been a life changing decision!! And so much for the better, in case you asked.
But to get a taste of it let’s start building out your very own siterubix.com website, up and running after 30 seconds!
Again, no credit card needed. This is no scam. You will see my very own account on each screen shot as I am showing you everything from my own account within Wealthy Affiliate.
You can find out more by visiting WA —–> simply click here, it’s free.
Let’s take the tour!
Creating a website from scratch in 3 steps and 30 seconds
I imagine, you already have an idea what the site should be about.
I did when I searched for ways to start a website for free.
To make this really a 30-second creation, think about what your brand name should be, so the overall name of the domain.
It doesn’t have to fit exactly what you want to call your site, just think of brands like apple. They do not sell apples. So just chose something appealing to you. That one you won’t change. But also no one else can have it. It is your very own real estate in the online world. It is yours and only yours.
The website name however you can change down the way, so do not worry too much about it now.
Just pick one!
Let’s get all set up with a free account —–> click here to create your free account
and enter the Siterubix.com platform! —–> click here to create a free website
You can either access the site builder from your WA account like I show in this screenshot and click on the second item from the top of the middle column. ——-> SITE BUILDER
Or you get there from your Siterubix.com entrance point and either way where you land is here:
Click on the first item and follow the steps!
Step 1 – Choose a free domain name and website name
As you have already chosen your domain name, put it in the free text box at number two and see if it is available. If it isn’t, somebody has already taken it and you will have to try another one. As soon as you hit one that is free, go grab it!!
Choose a name for the website. This will appear on your website and your readers and visitors will see it. You can change that one later. But it isn’t very helpful to change it often, as google will index you in a short time from now on and it doesn’t like too many changes in terms of ranking (showing up before others in results if someone is searching something you could provide).
Step 2 – Choose from the free World press themes
As a free starter member you can chose from 12 only I believe. But they are the best ones. Most frequently updated and easy to customize, so pick one that will suit your idea of a website! Chose if you like a huge header image and a blog roll below, or a more static website where people can click their way through all the options.
You can change your theme later as well. Your content and plugins won’t be lost. So don’t worry too much right now!
Step 3- Install
So now we just click on the green button to install and it is doing everything by itself.
Installing all the fantastic free features as anti spam, site speed.
There are also 3 plugins already installed with your site.
So you do not have to pay for them or look for them.
For now, you do not even need to know what they are for.
While you learn on this platform, everything will become clear step by step.
The beauty of it all is that in the end of the training you will have a perfectly functioning website and you will know what to do with it. You can access it in different ways:
- the most uncomfortable is through the wordpress admin login itself, you will need to know your password
- much more comfortably through the third item in the left column which is websites. It will lead you to this window, where you can simply click login on the blue button.
- through site manager with the login button
It will show you your
This is like your back office. From here you will customize your site, edit and add content.
You can always click on -visit site- as a dropdown at the left upper home button under your site’s name.
This is the website I created in those thirty seconds for you.
You can do the same and don’t worry you can also delete it.
But why would you?
Now you are the owner of your very own wordpress website.
Congratulations are in order! That wasn’t too hard, was it?
How to create a website in wordpress for free and what to do with it
Looking at your website though you might find it pretty empty. That is because there is no media (photos and videos) added, but you can do that later.
First thing to do is delete the dummy content and put in your very own subtitle and menu structure in the wordpress dashboard. You will then create an -About me- post which will explain who you are and what you wish people to help with. The training in WA will gently and effectively guide you through this process and this is still for free.
Installing all the fantastic free features as anti spam, site speed. There are also 3 plugins already installed with your site. So you do not have to pay for them or look for them.
Then you can use the coolest keyword search tool for creating new content. It is also providing you with incredible 30 free searches. I hadn’t used them all when I decided to stay with WA.

This might seem overwhelming at first, but Kyle’s training is fantastic! He will guide you step by step. FOR FREE! It is accessed through the fifth item in the left column. The research tool.

You can build 2 wordpress websites and host them a month for free. Then it’s 19 dollars to upgrade the second month and on the third till whenever you like it’s 49 dollars. By then you will probably earn more than that if you can put in the effort and time to post every day and work on your site regularly.
Do I need writing skills?
You can start from where ever you are. Articles and blogs are no textbooks. The important thing about them is that you talk to someone and help this someone. If you solve a person’s problem he or she will not care about your writing skills.
Be honest, upfront, communicative and you will connect! On WA we also have an internal blog for every member so that you can train those skills with friends.
Do I need programming skills?
No, you don’t. Every step is laid out for you, every click is explained. Whenever you wish for something outside the explanation you will have a community of near 2 million members ready to help you out! I have never had a problem unsolved or a question unanswered. And on the way I learned some programming language, but this is a by product.
Just as the fantastic friends I made, cheering each other up, motivating, inspiring and sharing success stories to keep others going in a moment of difficulty. This is more effective than any study buddy I have ever had! It’s worldwide and fascinating.
Have a look at the features that you will get for free in the beginning month and all that is added for just 49 dollars from the third month on!
What do I need?
The most important skill, among others (determination, dedication, consistency, creativity) is Search Engine Optimization knowledge. SEO in short is what gets your website on the first page of google. We have all done research on google, bing, yahoo, but I guess that you as well rarely look at the second or third pages that you are presented with as result.
So even if you write beautifully, you programmed your site in a unique and very appealing way, it is useless if people can’t find you. So how do we find and how do we use keywords to be sure we will appear on the first page of a google, bing and yahoo research?
